The 10 most beautiful islands on Earth


Islands don't have to involve the villain from The Naked Gun and Nick Nack from The Man with the Golden Gun to fulfill your fantasies. No, in fact, there are plenty of non-fiction islets and archipelagos out there to make all your dreams come true.

From clusters of islands in Europe and Asia all the way to the Caribbean, these islands were voted the most picturesque on the planet by Condé Nast Traveller UK in this year's Readers' Travel Awards.
